An incredible $64,000 was raised in support of local shelters at the Royal LePage Network Realty Corp. annual golf tournament in Red Deer, AB. Funds raised are directed to the Central Alberta Women’s Emergency Shelter via the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, and a local youth shelter.

The event was sold out with 144 golfers who enjoyed a beautiful day on the course, entertainment and refreshments. Things got especially exciting when player, and tournament supporter, Garrett Scott won the $10,000 ‘Hole in One’ prize and very graciously donated $5,000 back to the cause.

In addition to tournament fundraising, Royal LePage Network Realty Corp. arranged for $20,000 in in-kind donations to their local youth shelter, including a fresh coat of paint for the building, new security system, front deck, and entrance, and new bedding. Another $40,000 was secured in in-kind donations for suite renovations at an Elder Abuse shelter in Red Deer which the brokerage was instrumental in opening.

With the success of this year’s golf tournament, Royal LePage Network Realty Corp. has contributed nearly half a million dollars to the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation in financial and in-kind donations over the past 7 years.
